Mod note: We had some fierce competition for Kurt, making deciding between our auditions a lengthy process, haha. We appreciate patience on everyone’s behalf as well as the continued interest in our RP. Sammy, we feel like you really have a sense of not only Kurt, but also his very important friendship with Mercedes. If you’re still interested in the role please message us back within 24 hours with the account (with your ask and submit boxes on, please)
How active are you? Please explain: Fairly active. I’d give it a 7 out of 10. I’m on summer vacation until early September, but unfortunately real life’s a temperamental bitch sometimes and likes to have the spotlight on her so there might be days where I’m too busy to come on for long.
Anything else: Blue, blue, blue baby.

Describe your character in your own words: Kurt is insanely loyal and has a moral compass that would send most people packing home in shame, but let it be known that Kurt Hummel is far from a saint. Sometimes he knows he can be a grade A bitch, especially when he’s angry or upset or hurt. He says things in the heat of moment that he may or may not mean and that he may or may not regret later on (depending on who the person is), but he takes responsibility for his actions and his words as best as he can afterwards. Friends are important to Kurt since most people treat him like trash, so having Mercedes and the rest of the Glee Club means the world to him. The amount of drama that passes through the club is enough to make a very successful Real Housewives Of-esque show only about Glee Club kids, but Kurt pushes through it. He’s perceptive as well, and being close friends with Mercedes is cluing him into her weird behavior, and other peoples’ as well. He doesn’t know what’s going on, and he’s worried for his friend as well as suspicious.
He can’t say that he’s pleased about Jesse St. James’ appearance and everyone’s sudden infatuation with him. Kurt also doesn’t understand it. The Glee Club had always been looked down upon and treated badly by their own peers, why would the members be so open and welcome to a stranger who did just that? Especially his best friend Mercedes, who had about as big of a ‘no bullshit’ rule set in stone and nailed to the front door as Kurt. It’s odd, to say the least, and more than a little disconcerting, and Kurt wants to get to the bottom of it. He’s worried for Mercedes, for the Glee Club, and insanely suspicious of Jesse. It might have something to do with the curiosity Kurt has always sported, a factor that played well into his love for gossip, but the fact of the matter is that something is going on, and Kurt doesn’t intend on being out of the loop for much longer.
Aside from the top priority seating that the problem Kurt’s pinned his eye on has, Kurt likes to pride himself on being a very different and unique character. Being so has given him a lot of trouble over the years, and not just in high school. Kurt’s always seemed to have a front row seat and a golden ticket to the art of bullying, and it’s never been appreciated. It’s only grown worse over the years, and although Kurt is prideful and knows that he’s able to take care of himself, it’s tiring. He doesn’t like to mention it to his father, either, not after a visit to the doctor left them with bad news on Burt’s declining health. Kurt’s father comes before Kurt, and if it meant giving up a solo he deserved and wanted or shouldering the weight of a few immature jocks that bullied him, well, so be it.
He has always been strong - he had been pushed down and thrown around, but he had grown stronger from it all and always managed to push himself back up. But while he acts like he doesn’t care what they think of him, he does on a certain level. The confident, impenetrable mask he slips on every day is secure and not a complete facade, but it has some cracks. If things were better, if he had a boyfriend and more friends and someone who understood what he was going through, maybe there wouldn’t be any cracks. But beneath Kurt’s front, there’s a not so confident, not so secure boy who can’t help but hear what they have to say about him. And it doesn’t help his self esteem very much at all. Yet he wants - and strives - to prove them wrong, focusing on his schoolwork and his grades and education, ignoring what’s not important. Them.
Despite being pushed around and bullied, Kurt has always come out on top and has shown that he will not and can not be broken because he refuses to be. He refuses to be another gay teen suicide statistic on the news, refuses to be anything less than he knows he can be. He knows that with his level of talent, his love for music and his voice, he’ll get out of Lima, get out of Ohio and away from all of them and to someplace bigger, better. Someplace that will not only accept him, but want and praise him. It’s not just fame and fortune and proving bullies wrong that Kurt wants though. He wants not just people to like him, he wants someone to love him. And really, being a gay kid in Ohio, love isn’t easy to come by. Especially with his line of crushes.
Lima’s never been an interesting place for Kurt Hummel, and it’s most certainly not the place that he plans on settling down in or sticking around for after graduation, but he’s living in it now and Kurt will be damned if he doesn’t make the most of it.
Para Sample: You can find three over here! They’re a bit long so I linked them since I don’t want to make this submission taller than the Empire State Building.
